    Probably the most widely-used oil in cooking, olive oil is pressed from fresh olives. It's…

  • 2 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
  • 1 tsp fennel or caraway seeds


  1. Steam or boil the cabbage for 3-4 mins until just tender, then drain well. If doing ahead of time, cool under running water and chill until ready to stir-fry.

  2. Heat the oil in a wok or large frying pan. Add the garlic and seeds and cook for 1 min until beginning to turn golden. Toss in the cabbage and stir-fry over the highest heat for 3-4 mins. Season with a little sea salt and serve.

Delicious! Quick and easy. Used rapeseed oil, no salt. Served with bangers and mixed veg mash.

Easy and tasty but you do need to like caraway seeds for this to be a favourite. Had it with chipotle meatballs in lots of sauce which was a good combo.
